Global Products: SSF Guidelines

ICSF and its consultant on the project, TWO Design, completed the drafting of four scripts on the following topics: governance of tenure and resource management (Chapter 5 of the Guidelines); social development, employment and decent work (Chapter 6 of the Guidelines); value chains, post-harvest and trade (Chapter 7 of the Guidelines); and disaster risk and climate change (Chapter 9 of the Guidelines). The completed video for Chapter 5 and all four scripts have been submitted to the FAO for feedback. The remaining films are at various stages of storyboarding, illustration and animation.
